I was awarded compensation today according to ebenefits and the AB8 on there confuses me a little.
It shows an effective date of December 1, 2011 yet my initial claim was August 2010 and that is what the closed claim history shows also. August 2010. The supervisor that called a couple of weeks ago also said that the effective date would still be August 2010.
Is there a chance that the date on the AB8 should just be disregarded and when I receive the notice in the mail it may reflect the August 2010 date?
I claimed in August 2010, they denied me July of 2011, I requested a reconsideration based on new and material evidence in July 2011 and have now been awarded what should have been in the first place if it wasn't for a C&P Examiner with an agenda.
